Microbiology

Certest Offers Real-Time PCR Assays for Fast Detection of MDR Bacterial Infections

CerTest Biotec (Zaragoza, Spain; www.certest.es) has joined the fight against multidrug resistant strains (MDR) bacterial infections by developing real-time PCR assays for the fast detection of genes or punctual mutations that confer resistance to antibiotics from both Gram-positive and Gram-negative pathogens.

Blood Testing Distinguishes Benign Tumors from Precancerous Condition

The leading cause of mortality for patients with the neurofibromatosis type 1 (NF1) cancer predisposition syndrome is the development of malignant peripheral nerve sheath tumor (MPNST), an aggressive soft tissue sarcoma. In the setting of NF1, this cancer type frequently arises from within its common and benign precursor, plexiform neurofibroma (PN). More...

Microbiological Features of Mucormycosis Determined in Critically Ill Patients

Mucormycosis is a rare invasive fungal infection with high mortality in patients with severe underlying predisposing factors causing immunosuppression. The exact incidence of mucormycosis and the optimal therapeutic approach is difficult to determine, especially in severe cases, due to the rarity of the disease. More...

Dengue Patients’ Hemoglobin Concentrations Compared by POC and CBC

Dengue is a mosquito-borne viral infection that is mainly found in tropical and sub-tropical climates. The natural history of dengue has the unique characteristic of plasma leakage that results in hemoconcentration as well as vasculopathy and thrombocytopenia that result in bleeding. More...

High-Sensitivity Cardiac Troponin T Identifies Myocardial Injury with COVID-19

Cardiac troponin (cTn) is the preferred biomarker for the detection of myocardial injury (MI), which is defined when there is at least one cTn concentration above the 99th percentile upper-reference limit (URL) of a healthy reference cohort. More...
